I'm waiting for the house to wake up, I've been up since 4, I did my yoga and waiting for the light to go for a walk. I went out with a girlfriend the other morning on a birding excursion and was not disappointed. Some of my favorite fine featured friends were there.
*Eric's up :)
In fact the beautiful blue herons were there in big numbers sitting on eggs or attending newly hatched chicks. Don't you just love how they manage those long legs! I think the judges would be giving this one high marks for incredible form, pointed toes and all.
*Mart is up, hanging on the edge of the grand canyon bed, at 12 his eyesight is not what it used to be so he makes tiny little help me noises to be gently set on the floor when it's still dark in the morning. "I'm coming Martler"
They were flying to and from the bare trees, hunting around the small lake for provisions.
Three in the trees though not a fantastic shot, I don't have a long enough lens but my friend had a very good set of binoculars. We watched them for the longest time and I must say after watching the Cornell heron cam, I felt pretty informed as to just what was transpiring.
It was a fun morning, inspiring in fact. I had been asked by a very sweet lady to make a heron piece so these birds arrived at the right moment.
I started another heron piece yesterday which I plan to finish today, I'm always excited to see how they're going to come out.
Banjo's up, I hear the birds so it's time for dog food and out the door.
Have a good week all, xoxo Ro
